Mostly true. . . But, I wonder why Hitler arrested and imprisoned or killed
all members of the TS, and left all the O.T.O. and GD people alone.  Theosophy
as a philosophy of Universal Brotherhood and Divine Wisdom could not have been
the source of any of Hitler's ideas--although the S.D. itself might have been,
since it discussed racial evolution, ancient magic, and their symbology.  But,
that was all known since ancient times by the members of the GD, its O.T.O.
and A.'.A.'. spin offs, and its precursor magical societies--who were Hitler's
philosophers, instructors and SS associates.  Theosophy, per se, has no
relationship to any of that, by implication or otherwise.

Yes.  But I wonder why they didn't know "their true colors" right from the
beginning since Hitler laid them out thoroughly in Mein Kampf long before he
took over Germany as Chancellor.  The same might be said for any GD, O.T.O or
A.'.A.'. members or followers of Crowley who claim to be theosophists, while
also defending or apologizing for black magic practices or non-altruistic

But I said the "V" was a "sign" not a symbol.  The swastika as used by Hitler
was a "symbol" of the NAZI party (NSDAP)--and was pictured as a black, "left
turning" (sinester) swastika representing the "magical" power of "Thor's
Hammer", on a circular white field representing racial purity, over a red
background, representing the blood oath to eliminate, by death, all enemies of
National Socialism as well as all "inferior" races--(as Hitler outlined such
aims in his book, Mein Kampf).  But as I said, the "V" was a signification of
Victory, and used solely as a direct inspirational "sign" in speeches and
personal greetings. . .  And, as such, it could not be a "symbol" of anything
as specific as, nor could it have been designed to "counteract", Hitler's use
of the Nazi swastika symbol which was designed to represent the criminal
ideology of his ruling party.
